Detroit Lakes, MN (February 20th, 2024)

Ice conditions have started to deteriorate on both sides of Detroit Lake.  Shoreline ice is melting at the time of this publication, making it difficult to get on and off Detroit Lake without getting wet and/or muddy.  Because conditions are changing quite rapidly at the moment, I am focusing on my houses and customers on Little Detroit Lake only.  Please be careful if you plan to go out on any other  lake right now, and pay attention to the ice by shore.  With these conditions, I do not recommend driving vehicles or ATVs onto any lake right now.  Your safest option is to walk out. 

This fishing was most good this past week.  Crappies are still biting like crazy near green weeds in 8-12’, as are bass and northerns.  Walleyes are being caught in the same depths, but also in deeper water, from 20’-25’.  Crappies and eyes have been most active at night.  Again, please be careful right now, and plan on walking onto the ice, wherever you go.
